Situated on a compact flat site in the beachside suburb of Eastbourne, this is a Two storey, Three bedroom home with a tandem garage and workshop attached. Our clients wanted a comfortable and functional home with spaces that allowed them to relax and enjoy time with their children and grandchildren.
At the heart of home is a large, covered outdoor courtyard that seamlessly integrates with the indoor living areas ensuring it can be enjoyed all year round. Internally, spaces have been thoughtfully designed so rooms are multifunctional, serving different purposes and can be part of different areas of the house, or not, depending on what is required. Key structural elements have been concealed, removing obstructions, further creating a sense of a big, open space.
A feature block wall runs through the dining and living space, creating a contrast with warm hardwood floors. This also pulls in textural elements from the exterior, reinforcing the connection to interior spaces.
The location of the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor allows guests and visitors to comfortably enjoy their own space within the house.
A central, multipurpose space on the upper level, is used either as a second lounge, an additional bedroom for the grandchildren, or hobby room.
